The lockdown of the Capital in Washington is just one more example of the decent of America into a violent and dangerous place. People in America have turned to violence as a means of expressing their opinions and attempting to gain dominance over others. America is no longer a country ruled by reason.
Judging from what has been previously happening the country is descending into violence. I think cops are going rogue in our society, and I think this is a source of violence. When people don't like what's happening, especially to a certain group, whether it's race, sexual orientation or something else, they will rebel, resulting in potential danger or harm.
In the past few years, we have seen a rising tide of gun violence in the United States of America. Often the perpetrators of these acts seem to be disaffected loner types who act alone out of some extreme frustration with society. We must remember that these individuals are a tiny minority (that has always existed and likely always will) in our society, and that society is unlikely to crumble because of the acts of a few extremists. Better gun controls seem on the way and they will only help to curb this epidemic of violence.
No, the country is not becoming more violent. Unfortunately, the United States has always been a violent country. We have people killed every single day by guns in Chicago, Los Angeles, New York, and other cities. Violence is a huge part of the culture of the United States, especially since people can get guns so freely.
